Bosworth Leaves BEA for Google

Wow - Bosworth Leaves BEA for Google - I actually think this is a big deal. But who is going to champion disconnected use and HTTP servers on the desktop/laptop/palmtop for us?

This is quite the shift - not just one person moving between companies, but a shift from a 'product' company (write software to sell) to a 'service' company (operate software used every day). I wonder what other big 'software service' companies are out there and hunting up talent.

Was it just two months ago he commented on Google's GMail and said Google is clearly trying to think outside the box? Does this mean BEA isn't?
